Canada's WestJet has laid off another 415 pilots as the coronavirus crisis continues tearing through that country's aviation sector. The layoffs, which the Calgary-based airline announced in March, became effective on 1 April. Pilot union Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA) blasted the Canadian government for its ongoing inaction on sector-specific financial support, which it says led to these layoffs, and which continues to create uncertainty for Canada's airlines.
